The Year Was 1998 and the Zines Were On Their Way To The Landfill
Submitted to a newsletter in 1998:

"For those who wonder why I would destroy items, I'll say it's hard enough to sell original classic zines for dirt cheap prices. I would never go to the bother of trying to sell thousands of old n/l and adzines. So [the] five year n/l The LOC Connection as well as ancient Datazines, Treklink adult supplements, the long running Zine Connection, many of the On The Doubles, and lots of neat stuff became landfill. That's probably what has happened with most everyone. You have to have acres of space just to store the materials — besides being physically healthy and in possession of a good memory to be able to work with it..... [But] computers aren't the answer to the space problem. Who would want to scan everything to store in a computer or on disks?"
